Wimsey Cove Framing and Art is a locally owned and operated quality custom residential and corporate art frame gallery that specializes in shadow boxes, photography and historical maps of cities and states.

Wimsey Cove is located in Edgewater, South Anne Arundel County MD just 2/10ths of a mile south of Mayo Road across from the old Giant Food just south of Annapolis, Maryland.

Local Maryland artists and photographers have limited edition prints on display at Wimsey Cove to purchase and frame.

About Us

The owner, Elizabeth Ramirez, a watercolor artist, has 18 years in the picture frame industry as well as a degree in Studio Art from Rivier College in New Hampshire. Elizabeth has also taught arts and crafts in summer camps and given short courses in various framing techniques.

Se Habla Espanol

She strives to provide a friendly, family-oriented shop where we can work together to find the art and/or frames that fit your décor while focusing on fine art, original photography, original etchings, and reproductions of historic maps and prints.

Bella's Corner

A very unique part of her business is “Bella’s Corner” where children can play while parents are picking out the art, photos, mats, and framing they are looking for.  This corner is named for Isabella, Elizabeth’s daughter.   Features of this corner include toys, games, and DVDs for your children to enjoy. 

At Wimsey Cove, we feel that:

“Through art, children can express the creativity that they will need as adults to cope in this world.”

Maps & Art

Wimsey Cove Maps & Art, formerly in the Market House, is now at 103 Annapolis Street, the “main street” of West Annapolis. In 2007, Elizabeth opened Wimsey Cove Framing & Art in Edgewater. “We will continue our picture framing business there, but we are moving our historic maps and art to the new West Annapolis store,” she said.

The store features historic maps and bird’s eye views of places all over the world, but the emphasis is on making maps of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County available for local history lovers. In particular, we carry reproductions of the plats for many turn-of-the-century suburbs around Annapolis, including the 1890 plat of West Annapolis, the original lay-out of Wardour, and the plans for Woodland Beach and other historic subdivisions. Wimsey Cove also carries National Geographic maps & globes and gifts & books.

Wimsey Cove Featured Artist

Wimsey Cove Maps & Art, located at 103 Annapolis St. in West Annapolis, is featuring the photography of Lee D. Wieland, a West Annapolis resident. “We are thrilled to show the work of our Claude Street neighbor whose camera has recorded both our neighborhood and her world,” said Elizabeth Ramirez, owner of Wimsey Cove Maps & Art and, herself, a third-generation West Annapolis home owner. This Sunday, Oct. 6, from 1 to 5 pm, there will be a Reception for Lee Wieland at Wimsey Cove Maps & Art, 103 Annapolis Street, Annapolis, MD 21401. The exhibit, “…with a camera in her hand” of Lee Wieland’s work will continue until November 2, 2013.

Lee D. Wieland began photographing “her world” more than seventy years ago as a youngster growing up in Cuba, Brazil, El Salvador, Colombia, and Ecuador. After returning to the United States for college, she continued using her camera to record broad vistas and intimate details in her environment. Many years ago, on a commute from the Eastern Shore to downtown Washington, DC, she stopped in West Annapolis, fell in love with a cottage on Claude Street, and settled down. Well known for her rapid-fire photographs of events as well as her more studied photographs of houses, garages, fences, and flowers around West Annapolis (her house portraits), Lee Wieland is gifted at catching the spontaneity of a moment. As she says, “Most of all I love to capture the moment in time of a face, an emotion, a situation, a blossom – all so beautiful that they call out to the viewer to look closer and to know more, to ask questions.”

Permanent Exhibit

We also have another new exhibit, Finding Our Roots on Annapolis Street, which will be on display through the end of May. The exhibit, funded in part by the Four Rivers Heritage Area and West Annapolis Business Affiliation, was created by the West Annapolis Heritage Partnership to illustrate the “can do” attitude of West Annapolis since 1650. Many of the maps used in the exhibit are on sale at Wimsey Cove Maps & Art. Local historians, Virginia Vroblesky and Constance Ramirez, are there on Sundays to talk about the Great Wardour Train Wreck, Luther Giddings’ vineyard, and the witness trees in West Annapolis.
